L’émission européenne de la Première chaîne de Radio-Canada, Euromag, diffusait samedi le 11 février un extrait de l’émission Charivari de France Inter, émission où Philippe Vall, le directeur de Charlie Hebdo, livre un papier hebdomadaire.

Cette fois-ci, Vall revient sur la publication de son journal des 12 caricatures qui ont semé une vague de manifestations dans les pays arabes.

    Letter to the Editor

    Dear Editor,

    I’ve learnt with astonishment of the assumption of a number of European newspapers, that the publication of the Danish cartoons by the Jylands Posten, picturing the prophet Mohammed as a terrorist, is being considered as freedom of opinion.
    In the first place, freedom of opinion is not absolute, but is limited by local and European legislation, which forbids verbal or public insulting utterances against the religion of a group of people.
    In the second place, editions of newspapers are to be expected to show an elementary respect regarding the religious values of minority-groups, living in their countries, in casu muslims

    Evidently the official Arab and Iranian government-reactions, boycotting Danish products and asking the Danish government to justify itself, are not only extraproportionnal, but also deny the fact, that a government is not responsible for the management-policy of a paper-edition.
    Also the outbursts of violence under muslims in a great number of countries are rejectable.
    However, yet apart from the publications of the cartoons, those outbursts of violence must also be seen in the light of the common feelings of powerlessness and humiliation regarding the European support for the British-American occupation of Iraq and the growing anti-Islamclimate in Europe.

    Seen in this light, I consider the republishing of the Danish cartoons by a number of European newspapers not only provocative, but also in contrary with the fundamental human rights principles, which are based on respect for all human beings, regardless descent or religion.

    A propos de la bienfaisante annulation du Dakar vous pourriez titrer :
    “QUAND UN TERRORISME CHASSE L’AUTRE”.
    On peut trouver la formule excessive mais l’horreur du Dakar, pour ceux qui aiment le Sahara et ses populations, est un terrorisme sournois qui contribue à l’émergeance du terrorisme sanglant, sans parler de son incongruité au coeur des discours sur les économies d’énergie et l’environnement.
